For those itching to see just how far the horseless carriage can be developed, there are few more fascinating entities to watch than Koenigsegg Automotive AB. In just 21 short years of operation, the hypercar-manufacturer has gone from essentially nothing to one of the key players in cutting-edge, emerging automotive technologies.
Case-in-point: the Koenigsegg One:1, which is so-named due to the ludicrous one PS (German horsepower unit) per kilogram it manages to conjure.
So, for those itching to see just how far the horseless carriage can be developed, you won’t want to miss XCAR‘s recent interview with founder and owner Christian von Koenigsegg.

One detail we can share right now: the Swedish entrepreneur believes that the internal-combustion engine is quickly approaching its logical limits.
Conversely, says Christian von Koenigsegg, hybrid powertrains are here to stay for the foreseeable future.
